As if helping the U.S. women's basketball team win its fifth straight Olympic gold medal weren't enough, the Indiana Fever's Tamika Catchings arrived back in the states just in time to help lead her team to two victories in one week and earn her third WNBA player-of-week award this season. The award is the 17th she's earned in her career, the second most in league history. The Fever's next home game is Aug. 28 against the Washington Mystics, a team against which the Fever stands 1-1 this season. The Fever is 12-7 overall this season.
